comment How can I find and replace with a new line?
@Iain GNU sed and sed (some of which are strictly POSIX-compliant) need not necessarily be the same...And I am pretty sure the functionality you tested is guaranteed on GNU sed only. With the others, it may - or may not - work. Like playing poker. :-)

comment KDE opens .deb files with ar instead of a package manager
@VillaCaleb Well, you would actually have done dpkg -i at the same place where you did the aptitude call, and that is at the terminal prompt in bash. Please note that this is only necessary once apt-get fails. As in your case it did not fail, you may just disregard that.---Besides, thanks for accepting my answer; frankly, I would not even have dreamt about it, as I got some criticism for it ("off base" and things) ;) But: who laughs last laughs best (proverb). :P

@Celada Listen, I am seriously willing to delete my answer IF I have a proof that it is off base. But the OP has got to return first to know exactly...You're merely assuming that Jordan's answer is spot-on, but you can't know for sure either unless we get some feedback from that dude...

comment Duplicate sources.list entry
@Raymond_W Agree to Jason. Without your sources.list file, nobody of us can help - period. So please remember to supply it if you still want help about this issue.

comment How do I deal with directories that have spaces in their names from `find`?
Just to make one thing clear: for the OP's question, the for loop is indeed unnecessary BUT ... it is not necessarily redundant, especially not for bash beginners. For example, if you use two loop variables i and j (with j being an altered i) or simply a couple different statements, the for loop approach (though frowned upon) is easier to comprehend than teaching them the pro solution of -exec sh -c ... which is as if you attempted to teach calculus to a person that only ever learned about basic arithmetics.

comment Why can't I remove the empty directory with username www-data?
What does ls -al (instead of ls -l) show you? It is possible that there's still one or more hidden files OR folders inside /home/test (starting with a dot (.)) which need(s) root permissions to be deleted and which might inhibit the recursive deletion of the entire folder.

comment Find what process implements a FUSE filesystem
"Generic answer that works on all systems with FUSE support" has just been proved impossible. :) Because you cannot assume that the driver name shown in /proc/mounts has to be identical to the one you specify to pidof. My NTFS partitions have just (unfortunately) shown the naked truth: the driver shows up as fuseblk in /proc/mounts, whilst you have to use pidof with /sbin/mount.ntfs (i.e. /bin/ntfs-3g) to get the pids you want. This is far from unified, methinks, and too far to even think of parsing /proc/mounts for driver names one might want to feed into pidof.
